Time to up the tempo as Vulgatron hits us with another blitzkrieg of a track. Blackout is the second single from the Foreign Beggars founder, as he teams up with BadKlaat for the latest audiovisual onslaught.

Jay0117 hits us with another banger as he takes us through his typical daily escapades in A Day In The Life. For this track the Bristol MC has teamed up with local grime producer, Guido, and the video was made by Patch Productions. Streams of A Day In The Life are also available from the usual platforms.

Sticking with Bristol, as we check out the latest cut from Aristocrats. Wine & Roses features some strong lyrical work from Gus Stash and Stil Bizzy, as they let loose over some JMaxfield production. The video was made by DHACK Media.

New release from Onoe Caponoe, as the High Focus MC lets rip over a tasty dub from Terror Danjah and Sir Spyro. Onoe’s latest album, Surf Or Die, is out now.

Sylla B is due to hit us with a new album very soon and last week he treated us to a taste of what he’s got lined up. Spooky sees the Bristol-based MC cooking up a murky little number, with TrollGang production ace, Oozhe. Stay tuned for more news on the album coming soon.

A very strong start to Vulgatron’s (Foreign Beggars) solo venture as he unleashes his new track – Deadman. It’s a riotous collision of dubstep and grime, backed up with some hefty production from Mark The Beast and Nitepunk. The video was made by Tarnish Vision. Stay tuned for more from Vulgatron coming soon.

Another new video from slowthai, heralding the release of his debut LP, Nothing Great About Britain. Inglorious features grime veteran, Skepta. The album is out now on all the usual platforms.

I have just come to the realisation that despite slowthai being one of the most exciting artists working in the UK right now and the fact that I have been bumping his music for the last few months, this is the first time he has appeared on my blog.
Not a bad place to start though, as yesterday saw the release of the video of the titular track from his forthcoming album, Nothing Great About Britain. While the title might sound anti-English – and will no doubt be labelled that way by certain media outlets – it is in fact an ode to the county that slowthai loves, but at the same time it’s the same country he has seen disintegrate in recent times thanks to toxic political agendas and divisive public figures.
The album is due for release on 17 May and you can find pre-orders for physicals, plus various bundles, over at his store.

1920’s mobster vibes in the latest video from Wish Master. My Advice is taken from his recent Boom Bap To The Future album and features production from Baileys Brown. The video was made by Sektion Red.

Brand new music from my Foreign Beggars family, as they tear the end of the week a new one with Comatose. The distorted glitchy audible onslaught is produced by Ivy Labs and is available to stream/download on all the usual platforms via Division Recordings. Watch out for the Beggars UK tour, which kicks off next month, alongside those punk grime agitators, PENGSHUi. Read the rest of this entry »
